would you go to Windows 10 or stay with Windows 7?
Like all things it depends entirely what you want it to do.
Our friend Keyplyer above just gave us an elegant answer as to why Win 10 plus frills really suits their purposes.
For myself? I could still happily use Win XP Pro with a few updates in some areas, I never used Win 7. Went from XP Pro to Win 8.
My only problem with Win 10 Pro is it causes problems sometimes with other existing software, and even some hardware. A month ago, I wrestled a whole day trying to get a surveillance video camera to work with Win 10. I needed to film some nocturnal wildlife visitors to my front verandah. I don't use it very often. Cut a long story short?
I fired up an old Toshiba Notebook with XP, plugged in a USB video thingy, dredged up old video software on the net, and played around with nearly every driver I could find until one worked [originals lost many moons ago].
It was, as I had hoped the return of Possums, not rats as first feared.
I'm not about to go out and spend serious cash money [hardware/software] just because something doesn't work with Win 10 Pro ...
I've been into electronics for nearly 60 years now, recycling/cannibalising/refurbishing stuff has always been my gig. Microwaves, stoves, refrigerators, CD/DVD players, PC's. Like all Amateur [Ham] Radio operators I'm an inveterate collector of junk. The thrill of being able to bring a discarded appliance back to life, then give it working to someone needy can't be beaten. For me!
That's the bottom line. For the great number of people I expect the new coming update may well be a godsend with a host of new and exciting features.
For the average punter in the street? Googling something, maybe some email, perhaps Skype family overseas?
They simply don't need all singing/all dancing features. They don't even want to know about Operating System thingies - they're not enthusiasts.
As for Microsoft? Yes well. I have mixed feelings, good and bad. My primary annoyance is as I featured above - that is a typical Microsoft response - I'm convinced their answers are always canned responses. When you finally sometimes get an answer which solves your problem?
Mr Windows happily provides you with a link to one of the many well known Windows Forums on the net - someone else has done the hard yards for them. There you go. PS: Robert, I still remain in your debt from many years back when you generously provided your time assisting me with an intractable technical problem - I've never forgot it. I've forgotten what the problem was, but never your assistance.
